Samples Archive Mirror

February 27th, 2011 by Multimedia Mike

I’m pleased to announce the first (to my knowledge) public mirror of the world-famous MPlayerHQ multimedia samples archive, hosted right here at multimedia.cx (can you think of a better place?):

http://samples.multimedia.cx/

Here’s hoping the load doesn’t crush my simple hosting plan (which actually claims quite a bit of bandwidth per month, but we’ll see).

    some of the codec dlls on the samples repo get a lot of hits. so many that mphq admins had to disable downloads for it. one of the intel jpg dlls i think. as it was reused in a bunch of other programs and none of those installed it for the users haha.

    @compn: Whoa! That’s unusual. It was working when I first activated the mirror. I’ll try to figure out what went wrong. Thanks for alerting me.

    Okay, I fixed the problem. It had to do with an auto-generated .htaccess file that was supposed to do fancy indexing. It worked at first and then stopped working sometime in the last few days.

    Note that VideoLAN now also has a mirror:
